A beautiful clear wheatfield yellow which is slowly darkening in the sunset. A very open nose of peaches, apricots and herb garden under the summer sun. The sun continues in the mouth with a very clear and typical Riesling expression and generous fruit. A very versatile wine - try it with starters, continental cuisine, Austrian and German dishes (of course!), but also with Chinese, Vietnamese or Thai food, especially dishes containing ginger.

Those people who say they dislike Riesling because it is too sweet should get this as it is dry as a bone but mouthwateringly delicious!

This is now 11 years old. The nose is fresh citrus and classic Riesling petrol from the first, nice but a little light. No obvious tertiary notes. After a little time to warm up and open up, more complexity develops and almost a sweetness. The fruit notes of its youth are lost and the wine is past its prime for sure but still tasty and interesting - quite impressive for what was an entry level wine.
